Fake Medievalist

I'm doing a program for the local public library on several of The Canterbury Tales. I know, someone who's a real medievalist should do this, but here I am.

I finished working out a handout for the first night (on the General Prologue) that also sets up the next week (The Miller's Tale).

It's been fun reading up on recent (well, since I was in grad school, anyway) manuscript work on the tales. And that's also going to be helpful to me when the semester starts and I'm introducing the tales for my class. (It's not that we're going into depth about the manuscripts, but it's still helpful for me to learn stuff.)
